The Z axis is the depth axis that some 3D charts contain. Sometimes, the Z axis is also called the series axis. Let us be clear about the fact that not all 3D charts contain a Z axis. In fact, some 3D chart variants use the third dimension even if they do not need a Z axis! They do so just because some people wrongly believe that 3D is so cool.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
